You are on the backup site for Any posts, moves, or other changes you make here will not be permanent, because the pages and database from the main site will be backed up here every midnight EST. Additionally, things may not be working right, because this site is also a testbed for newer system software. So, if you are not here to test, develop, or merely read this site, you may want to change .org to .com in the navigation bar and go to the main site.

The Chess Variant Pages

Link to: Metapontum

Metapontum is a hexagonal chess variant. In this game, players do not fight each other but cooperate to reach a certain position, following the philosophy of the inventor, Hans Theo Frenkel. The Metapontum website (in Dutch) gives information on the game (including rules, pictures), the Metapontum organization, and the different Metapontum sets, with information on how and where they are made, and how to order them.
